RAPID + TCT
May 8 - May 11
RAPID + TCT is North America’s preeminent event for discovery, innovation, and networking in 3D manufacturing. The event will showcase the newest products, technologies, and materials in 3D printing, additive manufacturing, 3D scanning, CAD/CAE, metrology and inspection technologies.
Jennifer Herron has been invited to represent the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) at the Additive Manufacturing Standardization Forum at 2:00 pm on Tuesday, May 9, 2017. This special program at RAPID + TCT will discuss the current state of standards needed to advance the use of additive manufacturing and explore identified gaps and priorities with particular focus on needs for aerospace, defense, and medical applications. Several prominent standards development organizations involved in the America Makes & ANSI Additive Manufacturing Standards Collaborative (AMSC) will discuss their work programs and present opportunities for you to get involved. The AMSC’s “Standardization Roadmap for Additive Manufacturing” will be presented to launch the discussion. The session will include short presentations, Q&A, panel discussions, and networking opportunities.
For over 25 years, RAPID has defined the crucial role of additive manufacturing and empowered the establishment of an industry that continues to conceive, test, improve and manufacture new products at a faster, more cost-efficient pace. The two industry leaders in 3D technology events, SME and The TCT Group, are teaming up to produce the annual RAPID + TCT event starting in 2017.
